Hidden singletrack journey traversing a stunning mountain region.

Outdoor Norway expert guides will take you on hidden singletrack journey to experience a true wilderness ride in Norway. The views along this route from Oppheim to Liaset are simply gorgeous.

To get where no others go we need to push our bikes up in the mountain from Lake Oppheim. As we ride across the mountain ridge the splendours views unfolds and we can spot down the three valleys of the mountainsides and the Lønahorgi Peak at west. We stop at Skorseteggi Peak at 972 masl. to take a break and enjoy our delicious snack and the nature surroundings.

Reaching south side ridge and Liaset it’s time to embark on a long ride downwards mixing three short up’s until get back to Voss at 60 masl.

This beautiful route is perfect for those who are in good shape and used to challenging rides. The Grand Traverse is technically a complete loop, starting in town, involving many kilometers of paved road by shuttle, and returning by biking all the way back to town. A great long day journey.

Recommended for advanced riders. A fit rider on a strong intermediate skills level who don’t mind to walk around the few difficult sections and is up for a challenge will have a great experience.

- Hidden singletrack journey
- Rough terrain, rocks gardens and root sections to master your skills
- High-end full suspension mountain bike from CUBE
